Digital Art

Way back in the dim and distant past I used to create a lot of images like this using backgrounds I had created and photographed. I would then add the subject such as the lighthouse and blend the two together. In this one I have used a stock image from Fotolia and then blended in... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh

A lot of my work has doors in it, or the suggestion of doors. We all open the same door many times over and over and each time we open it new light comes in, different air, a fresh experience, an old experience slips out and gets loose in the room.   - Stephanie Torbert I... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Lost In The Details

Interesting choice for this weeks challenge. I’m on a tight schedule this week with Focus on Imaging on Tuesday and the opening of the long awaited in-town shopping centre on Thursday. I’m also still trying to process the 500 hundred or so photographs from last Thursdays trip to the National Slate Museum so for this... Continue Reading →

Each of the elements that you... Continue Reading →

Sliders Sunday – 29th April

It's Sunday again and I can't believe it has come round so fast. Which means it's time for another Sliders Sunday. I was wondering what to do this week and thought I really need something that I can do pretty quickly as I've got a lot on today. What with post-processing the images from the... Continue Reading →

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

As a mainly landscape/seascape photographer I don't usually do photographs that would immediately spring to mind as unusual. But in the dim and distant past when I was first teaching myself to use PhotoChop I used to experiment a lot with textures and brushes. So for this weeks challenge I created this image using an...
